DSAS v6.0 Infographic

Detailed Description

The Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) version 6 is a standalone application that calculates shoreline or boundary change over time. The GIS of a user’s choice is used to prepare the data for DSAS.  Like previous versions, DSAS v.6 enables a user to calculate rate-of-change statistics from multiple historical shoreline positions. It provides an automated method for establishing measurement transects, performs rate calculations, and provides uncertainties associated with rates of change. A user-friendly interface allows the user to complete the workflow for shoreline change analysis.
